The portrayal of the indigenous people on the island could have been handled a lot differently. I see no reason why they were made to look so overly agressive and ugly.
I was really suprised by this as it was totally unneccessary and I thought Peter Jackson could have treated this a lot differently and more intelligently.Rather than allude to them being in some kind of voudun trance (?) they could have been shown more compassionately, heck, they'd been living in constant fear of giant animals - and perhaps show the concept of making a sacrifice out of fear rather than seeming to enjoy it??
I told you it was some mess. I don't know why, considering indigeous groups are becoming more "Americanized" than Americans, White film directors continue to portray them in this way. They are racist, that's why. You should have took your money and spent it on something to eat.
